Bernard Gantner is introduced to the oil painting by Léon Delarbre who is, at the time (since 1929), curator of the Museum of fine arts of Belfort. After his Bachelor's degree in philosophy, he travelled to Paris where he briefly attended the national School of Fine Arts, then took the courses of a free academy, mainly to learn about painting through the visit of many museums and galleries.

He is known for its winter landscapes which have a great poetic density. His drawings, made directly in contact with nature, are the source of most of his oil paintings, watercolours or lithographs (made on stone and not on zinc). He has been creating 80 oil paintings a year for over 50 years, namely 4,000 pieces, 700 watercolours, 500 lithographs, 100 etchings and the illustration of 11 bibliophily books.

After living in Switzerland on shores of Lake Geneva Lake Geneva, he moved to Lachapelle-sous-Chaux (Territoire de Belfort).
